Im Film sind sie schon im Teenager-Alter, das funktioniert. Nur das Ende hat mir ein wenig Schwierigkeiten bereitet, weil ich mich dazu entschieden hatte, es offen zu halten. Nicht weil ich nicht wusste, wie ich die Geschichte zu Ende bringen wollte, sondern weil ich den Leser ein wenig im Unklaren und in einem Moment des Staunens aus dem Roman entlassen wollte.
Das fasziniert mich. Seit ich mich erinnern kann, war es mein Traum einmal Schriftstellerin zu werden. Also habe ich mir das Tippen auf der alten Schreibmaschine meines Vaters selbst beigebracht.
Und dann gab es noch eine Erfindung aus der grauen Vorzeit: Durchschlagpapier. Das hat ewig gedauert. Das ist es jetzt! The idea that the encounter with the other could be an educational project,—an experiment Rousseau talks about with regard to the orangutan—expanding and deepening knowledge, is taken up in the 19th century by literary texts depicting the encounter of apes and humans in some form of imitation. More precisely: These literary texts describe the encounter from the perspective of the ape, and the cultivation of these apes as an imitation.
However, cultivation is not depicted as an ideal in itself in these texts, nor is the ape shown to be capable of an enculturation not based on imitation. While the 18th century negotiated the human-ape-relationship at least in part through the topic of interbreeding—something we have to also read as a displaced discourse about slavery, miscegenation and humanity—we see that in the 19th century, this relationship surfaces in the discourse about enculturation and serves to explore the category of humanness in itself: Who is capable of being cultivated?
Who is a human? Creating apes as beings that are cultivated through imitation, the texts challenge the idea of cultivation itself as either a form of copying or as dressage. In the eyes of the narrator, the character is first and foremost a young man, but above all, he is also an ape. In addition, Milos conquers the language barrier traditionally thought of separating humans from animals. Left behind in this process is the female, ape symbolized by his friend Pipi; though she has been captured too. The German slave narrates a story that begins in his youth.
When the foreigner leaves town directly after the troupe moves on, the postmaster is surprised. Nobody ever sees the nephew on the street, but sometimes townspeople observe through the windows how the foreigner whips the young Englishman:.
Helfen Sie uns!
But sometimes,. The young people of the town now imitate the behavior of the Englishman. He is out to expose the mechanisms of a society based merely on appearances and imitation. Instead, the townspeople interpret differences in behavior through a lens of national ascriptions: He behaves as he does because he is thought to be of English origin The difference between human and ape is articulated as the difference between national characters.
Echoing another long Western tradition, namely the depiction of apes acting as mirrors of humans, the text shows that the concept of mankind depends on certain notions of cultivation and civilization.
In that sense, cultivation is nothing more than a fashion, like the glasses everyone wears because the nephew wears them. But it tells a more ambivalent story.

The text defines the process of education und cultivation as a form of masquerading framed as copying. Poe instrumentalizes the body of the ape to enter a discourse on race. The ape in this text is limited to imitating gestures he tries to imitate a barber 81 without understanding what those gestures mean. Here, however, the reader is no longer simply dealing with the idea that imitation is at the root of cultivation as in the texts from the 19th century. Rotpeter envisions human German culture on a narratological level as nature. This is where enculturation is no longer envisioned as an act of imitation but as mimicry: Originating from the African Gold Coast, Rotpeter moves narratively back into the bushes.
Reading the stories by Hoffmann, Hauff, and Kafka in a chronological order suggests that the depicted relationship between humans and apes not so much reflects shifting paradigms in natural sciences as it reflects changing ideas about cultivation and civilization. In all these texts, the human being is not presented as the crown of creation, and cultivation does not guarantee the neat separation of mankind from apes.
Instead, all of this only brings us back to the place from where we started: the bushes. See Julia Voss: Darwins Bilders. Ansichten der Evolutionstheorie Frankfurt am Main , p.
